The stamp I used is named Primrose - Beach Life. I fell in love with her as I was cruising the Crafty Sentiments Designs site.
I colored my image with Copics and after I colored it, I felt it needed some highlighting and I used yellow chalk from my Pebbles Inc. Pearlescent Chalk set around the image and also I chalked my sentiment with it, too, for a tint of yellow. My sentiment is from Crafty Sentiments Designs, too. I used REAL beach sand and shells that I had collected when we vacationed in San Diego, California, USA. I think my paper adds a lot to this card and it's from the Doodlebug "Springtime" pad. The die around my image is from Spellbinders. The daisies are by Martha Stewart and I am loving my cool Glitter Ritz lately becuase it's so fine and it actually sparkles in photos! And this card has some of my favorite lace on it..the kind where I can weave the ribbon through it. The rest of the items on my card are from my stash.
Here's a close-up of my image. The polka dot colors on her swimsuit match the polka dot paper. J
